5:35am
disperse the crowds. trash cans were burned right in the middle of the street. just before 1:00 this morning, police told fans they were participating in unlawful assembly and they were told to leave the area. now, things also got out of hand near seventh and market streets in san francisco. one of our photographers took this video of people jumping on top of a muni bus. you can see one person inside a little scared making a phone call there. then in the same area a viewer sent us this video of a car that was flipped over by some celebrating fans. now, we do have complete coverage of the world series all the excitement and aftermath. go to our website ktvu.com and click on the world series tab. now 5:35. hurricane sandy keeps barreling toward the east coast this morning. you heard steve, shutting down schools, mass transit even the financial markets. >> it is powerful, up to 50 million people could be
5:36am
affected by this storm. it could be the largest storm ever to hit the united states. forecasters say the center of the storm should make landfall along the new jersey coast later today. it will be colliding with two other weather systems. that could cause a super storm and an 800-mile area from the east coast to the great lakes. if you plan to fly today, call ahead. check first before you head to the airport. thousands of flights have be been cancelled all over the country because of the hurricane. it's expected to have a ripple effect, as you can imagine. ktvu's alex savidge is at san francisco international airport where we're learning that all flights to six east coast cities have been cancelled. what else is going on, alex? >> reporter: well, hurricane sandy is causing some major headaches for travelers in the bay area who are trying to get back to the east coast. let me give you a look at the board here. you can see these flights at new york's jfk airport and
5:37am
newark airport this morning cancelled due to weather as you can see right here. i got an update from the airport operations center a short time ago. i'm told all flights cancelled from sfo to six east coast cities. they include new york's jfk, newark, boston, philadelphia, washington, d.c. and baltimore. travelers may not get to those cities for a couple days. the airport operations center did not have exact numbers of flights, but at least 50 as of yesterday. most are on united airlines, but jetblue, virgin, u.s. airways and delta also impacted this morning. the airlines are booking people on to other flights as we speak and a short time ago we talked with one man from stockton who is trying to fly to new york to see family but his flight was cancelled. >> it's frustrating that all the phone calls, all that waiting, 13 hours once they called and cancelled. so that's why i had to come from stockton to talk to the airline because no one
5:38am
really answered the phone. it took too long. so yeah, it's frustrating to drive out here to have to take care of it in person. >> reporter: that gentleman i talked with this morning told me it was possible that he may not be able to get to new york until thursday of this week. that is what he is being told by his airline. he was trying to fly on united this morning. you can see folks checking in for flights. these are folks who have checked ahead and know their flights have not been cancelled. that's a good idea. if you are planning to travel to new york, boston, philadelphia it's a good idea to call ahead to your airline to make sure your flight is still on time and will still be heading there. alex savidge, ktvu channel 2 news. more than 100 members of california's air national guard are heading to the east coast to help with any rescue efforts. members of the 129th rescue wing will leave at 11:00 a.m.
5:39am
from mountainview. the storm is more powerful than google. google cancelled the introduction of its latest nexus tablet and smart phones. the events was supposed to take place in new york city, but the area has been evacuated. we'll continue to track the path of hurricane sandy throughout the morning. you can also get updates any time anywhere ktvu.com. pam, we're also talking about fog this morning. sal is, because it will affect your commute. >> it sure is. if you're trying to leave the house, i think an extra five or ten minutes might help you with the foggy commute. what happens is so we're looking at bay point, it's not all that foggy, but then you drive in other parts of the bay, especially any distance you will see it. steve has been warning us about the fog. he has some advisories he will share with you. but just as a driver, make sure that you don't use your high beams. use low beams or fog lamps. high beams just ends up reflecting the fog back at you. you don't want to do that.
5:40am
reflective lights, the fog reflects the high beams back at your eye level there. this is a look at the bay bridge toll plaza, westbound. it is a little bit of a backup in some of the cash lanes. and the morning commute is moving along pretty well if you're driving on the nimits freeway, no major problems in san jose or the south bay. so far the traffic looks good on the peninsula and also on 101 so far. let's go to steve. thank you. sandy making its move. it's intensified in the last 12 hours. had a little check on the weekend, dry air came in on the back side and didn't merge with the colder jet on the great lakes, but now that it's moving, it's starting to interact with the gulf stream. the water is temperature is about 80 and it is accelerating northwest at 20 miles per hour. the wind is up to 85. the central pressure is 946 mill bars, or 27.79 inches of mercury, which is just record setting. this will be a big
5:41am
story today, tomorrow, most of the week. it's making its move, tonight looks to be the impact. probably gusts to 90 miles per hour in new york city alone. we have a little bit of a break here from the rain until probably late wednesday or early thursday. the fog is thick, we have that, plus a dense fog advisory until 8:00. mostly sunny this afternoon, cooler, but that fog can be not only on the coast, highway 1 but north bay, east bay, concord, santa rosa, napa, fog. the parade looks okay, maybe a little drizzle, upper 50s, 60s, more low clouds than anything else. trick or treaters look ay, more likely the rain will come in thursday morning, mostly cloudy, could be drizzle on the coast. 40s and 50s, 45 at sonoma county airport. fog, cooler, dense fog advisory until 8:00. some of the fog will hang on till probably 9:00 seems to be the pattern. 70s for some,
